Clear Creek High School’s boxing program is always looking to produce the next great fighter. From left, Michael Burch, Anthony Petranilli and Ivan Garcia are among the latest crop of boxers working their way up the ladder of success.
Boxing trio making its mark

Ivan Garcia, Anthony Petranilli Jr. and Michael Burch are not the biggest boxers. They weigh 65, 106 and 114 pounds, respectively. But that is why boxing, unlike, say, hockey or basketball, caters to them.
They may be shorter in stature, but boxing allows them to throw their weight around — literally — better than their heavier counterparts. And though there’s not much weight to them, this trio of Clear Creek boxers is starting to throw it around more and more with each passing day.
